when the leaves of the peach trees have grown
and their branches bend and furrow
i’ll ask you to
A blast seeps in from the east
Restless, cold and biting
The sky darkens
No moon in
a blast of heat
pedestrians crowd the city streets
In winter spring summer and fall if I had you, I'd have it all. Your hypnotic bouquets of springtime

Drowsy, dry and debilitated the bee lay on the
Hush, be still, let sweet air nostrils fill.
Trees beseech, Oak, Sycamore, Birch and Beech.
'Tis the last rose of summer! I shrieked in dismay,
and soon its bright petals must wither
The pine branch is white
with dawn frost, soon to vanish
